Cookie Monster Parodies Catching Fire as Cookieness Evereat

Cookie Monster Hunger Games

While most adults might gravitate more towards The Muppets instead of Sesame Street, the kid’s show still has a lot to offer adults looking for cute skits and parodies, especially those with Cookie Monster. While I could care less about Elmo, Grover, and the others, Cookie Monster has never really got old, even surviving the program’s need to point out that cookies are a “sometimes food.” (Check out this skit with game developer Tim Schafer as proof!) His latest skit has him playing the role of Cookieness Evereat in a parody of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. While the brutal nature of the games has been completely toned down to “The Hungry Games,” there’s a lot to like here.

Dystopian young-adult sci-fi novel “The Hunger Games” is being converted into a feature film by Seabiscuit‘s Gary Ross, and the hunt has been on for an actress to fill the role of heroine Katniss Everdeen. Names like Saoirse Ronan and Hailee Steinfeld have been tossed around as potentials, but according to The Wrap, the film has officially found its lead: Winter’s Bone actress Jennifer Lawrence. Having an Oscar nominee leading a genre film is a pretty big deal, and Lawrence is one of Hollywood’s rising female stars, so this certainly bodes well for the film. Suzanne Collins’ book series has been one of the biggest and most talked-about young adult series in years, so if The Hunger Games does well, it could mean a trilogy (and mass exposure) for Lawrence.
